Another nymph with a difference from Bosnia, The Bosnian Woven Tungsten Nymph.
Woven Nymphs - once the preserve of the competition angler (due to the complexity of weaving the bodies), and now available to us mere mortals. These nymphs all have woven two-tone bodies, the amount of skill required to tie these properly is amazing.
This is an amazing nymph, with a woven body. The hook is a barbless wide-gape jig hook. It's a great fly for both trout and grayling. Its body weight allows it to fish on virtually every type of water (fast/deep/still).
A great fly to try at this time of year. Ephemera nymphs are found in all of our rivers (and Stillwaters), with Grayling (and Rainbow Trout) gorging on them as they become dislodged in the heavy flows. Trundle one of these along the river bed and hang on!
This woven nymph imitation is ideally used as a point fly in any nymphing setup (and great for sight nymphing). Don't forget about using these on stillwaters also. These imitations are all tied on size 14 wide-gape jig barbless hooks.
When you fish a nymph on a jig hook it fishes upside down so the tail will always be above the gravel. Adding a hotspot to the thorax area isn't so important, but it is important for the nymph to be seen, so we've added it to the tail, in 4 different colours:
- Natural & Cream (with a Gold tungsten bead)
- Olive & Cream (with a Gold tungsten bead)
- Purple & Black (with a Black tungsten bead)
- Orange & Champagne (with a Black tungsten bead)
Each of the above nymphs weighs in at 0.4g
These specialist Early Season Trout & Grayling nymphs are all tied on size 14 Ahrex FW551 Mini Jig hooks. Our Bosnian Woven Tungsten Nymph Selection contains 16 nymphs (4 different body colours, 4 of each in size 14).
Please Remember: We've only 30 of these selections available, so if you want a set, you will need to be quick - Our Bosnian flies always sell out within a few hours of being released!
